Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On Letters Sent To Ticket Resale Websites

NEW YORK—Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement today on letters his office sent to StubHub, Vivid Seats, Ticketmaster and TicketNetwork on increased transparency in the ticket industry:

“Ticketing is a fixed game. Unscrupulous players in the industry use tactics that prevent New Yorkers from getting tickets at affordable prices, or even getting them at all. Now we are calling on the major resale websites to address these issues. These sites should take steps to discourage speculative ticket sales, ensure ticket resellers are properly licensed, and facilitate compliance with New York laws. My office will continue to work towards creating a more fair and transparent ticket market for fans and to crack down on anyone who breaks our laws and preys on ordinary consumers.”
